Greetings from Prague


More pairs of ODLS found
Dear participants!

The second bunch of our congratulations we send to:

ReaDy (Astronomy.Ru Forum) and citerra (Russia Team),
taurec (SETI.Germany) and DrBob (USA),
Fernando Miguel and Duce H_K_ (TSC! Russia),
Nosferatu* (Sicituradastra.) and Conan (Cobar Spiders),
Werinbert (Free-DC) and Scotie (Czech National Team),
zoltan blatter (The Scottish Boinc Team) and Dingo (BOINC@AUSTRALIA),
meadoel (BOINCstats) and Sabroe_SMC (SETI.Germany),
GLeeM (TeAm AnandTech) and Fornax (SETI.Germany),
Steve Dodd (The Planetary Society) and owensse (The Planetary Society),
TBox0194 (USA) and [DPC] hansR (Dutch Power Cows),
respawner (Rechenkraft.net) and Sphynx (SETI.USA)!

The project performance observed in the last two weeks achieved a power comparable with a computing cluster of ~600 CPU cores and boosted the speed of our research by a dozen of times! Thank you very much for participation!

Anniversary of Perelman solution and a bunch of ODLS!
15 years ago, on 11 November 2002, Grigori Perelman posted the first of a series of three e-prints outlining a solution of Poincare conjecture:
The entropy formula for the Ricci flow and its geometric applications
Ricci flow with surgery on three-manifolds
Finite extinction time for the solutions to the Ricci flow on certain three-manifolds

In honour of this anniversary (and three months of our project life :)) we start publishing the results found by the crunchers in October and November and granting them badges, specially created for this event.

Our first congratulations we send to:
LCB001 (Hardware Canucks), Mumps [MM] (SETI.USA),
ale4316 (Ukraine), zombie67 [MM] (SETI.USA),
Ufol (BOINC@Poland), tom7up (SETI.Germany),
fzs600 (L'Alliance Francophone), Daniel (BOINC@Poland),
Hoshione (SETI.Germany), AL ADIM (BOINC@Poland),
eclipse99 (BOINC@Poland), [SG]ATA-Rolf (SETI.Germany),
bill brandt-gasuen, Ralfy (BOINC Confederation),
Roadranner (SETI.Germany), KPX (Czech National Team),
AMDave (AMD Users), Paul,
aendgraend (SETI.Germany), fix,
Xperos (Xperos) and Tuna Ertemalp (Microsoft)!

Many of these participants discovered more than one result with ODLS pairs!
And, of course, we applause to Ralfy and the BOINC Confederation team, which catch the lead in Users and Teams standings!

As previously, all found ODLS can be seen at the results page.

New application and tasks coming soon
Dear folks! Processing of the first bunch of workunits (12000 in total) is near to its completion. In the next several days we plan to release a new version of application and to generate at the server side small sets of tasks (about 100 - 250 - 500) and monitor their processing. Even having faced problems and unexpected behavior of the computing process, we were pleasantly surprised of the achieved computing power of the open project BOINC Grid!

Thank you for your participation!
Happy crunching!


Дорогие друзья! Обработка первой группы рабочих заданий (всего 12000) близка к завершению. В ближайшие дни мы планируем выпустить новую версию приложения, создать на стороне сервера небольшие наборы заданий (около 100 - 250 - 500) и контролировать их обработку. Даже столкнувшись с проблемами и неожиданным поведением вычислительного процесса, мы были приятно удивлены достигнутой вычислительной мощностью открытого проекта BOINC Grid!

Благодарим за Ваше участие!
Успешного кранчинга!

Request to reset the project
Dear participants,

due to the problems with app_version, the tasks received by BOINC clients will probably crash. If you experience the errors, we kindly ask you to cancel them and reset the project. New tasks are being generated with new attributes and should work fine. We increased the estimated flops and the upper bound of flops to avoid errors "Exceeded elapsed time limit".

Also, we are sorry that on October 10 the project server was unavailable because of unplanned power cuts.

We are grateful for you patience and support!

Дорогие участники вычислений!

Из-за проблем с app_version текущие задания, скорее всего, закончатся с ошибкой. Если у вас возникают ошибки, то, пожалуйста, отмените текущие задания и сделайте Reset проекта. Новые задания будут сгенерированы на сервере с новыми свойствами и должны работать нормально. Мы повысили оценку числа flops и верхнюю границу допустимого числа flops, чтобы избежать ошибок "Exceeded elapsed time limit".

Просим прощения, что 10 октября сервер проекта был недоступен - произошло несколько отключений электричества из-за аварии.

Очень благодарны вам за терпение и поддержку!
